Curses applications to catch SHIFT + cursor keys

is there a way to make curses applications correctly catch SHIFT +
cursor left / cursor right? I tested this with zsh and curses module,
and it doesn't work. Also, following short test application:

shows that KEY_SLEFT, KEY_SRIGHT aren't catched. On X11 pressing the
combinations outputs an escape series. Is there any solution?
